Michaël Zumstein

Michaël Zumstein graduated from the Vevey Photography School (Switzerland). His photographic work is directly in line with a tradition of investigation photojournalism.

While following the conflicts in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ivory Coast, Sudan, or Central African Republic, he chooses to focus his photography on the ambiguous relations between Africa and the West. During its campaign “Dignity”, Amnesty International France chooses him in 2010 to produce a body of work on bad housing in Lagos, Nigeria: This house is not for sale. In 2011, his reportage on post electoral crisis in Ivory Coast receives international recognition, and he obtains a grant from the French National Center for Fine Arts to produce Bons Amis, a multimedia piece on reconciliation in Ivory Coast. His recent work in Central African Republic received several awards, including Picture of the Year and Swiss Press Photo.

CĂ©dric Gerbehaye

Trained journalist, CĂ©dric Gerbehaye chose photography as his way of recounting the world.

Between 2002 and 2006, he produces several stories in Israel and Palestine. A year later his work Gaza: summer rains receives special acclaim at the Bayeux-Calvados Award for war correspondents. From 2007, he travels regularly to D.R. Of Congo, and brings back a powerful statement, Congo in Limbo, that will be published as a book, exhibited several times, and awarded seven times internationally. Shortly after, he decides to work on South Sudan and his series Land of Cush receives the Prix SCAM Roger Pic in 2012. In 2013, he directs Broken Hopes, Oslo’s legacy, a web-documentary on the palestinian territories, 20 years after the Oslo Accords.
